MAYOR ASKED AT JFK: 'DID YOU MEET WITH TERRORISTS?'
Propsect Park's mayor, Mohamed Khairullah, was sworn in by Gov. Phil Murphy in January. He has held that post since 2006. For three difficult hours at JFK International Airport last month, he was treated as someone else entirely: a suspect. Shortly after landing in the U.S. after visiting his family in Turkey — with four young children in tow — Khairullah, who is Muslim, was questioned by officials and ordered to give up his phone. "Everything that was going on there was a violation,” he told reporter Hannan Adely. (The Record)
